From Grief, Depression, or Illness to Positivity & Healing

Death is nothing at all……….

Filed under: Grief Info — by Sue @ 12:10 pm

I know I don’t blog on here a lot anymore but as it’s 4 years today that I lost my mum, I felt I needed to. My feelings and emotions automatically take me back to that day and I wonder if and when it’ll get easier. A good friend was kind enough to post this on my facebook wall of a favorite pic of my mum and it’s what’s going to get me through year after year – I wanted to share and hope it helps you too somehow.

Death is nothing at all…
I have only slipped away to the next room…
I am I and you are you…
Whatever we were to each, that we are still.

Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak it to me in the same way you always used.
Put no difference into your tone,
Wear no false air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect, without the ghost of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolutely unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident.

I am but waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner.
All is well.
